with the u.s. live at 8:30, national journal editor charlie cook leads a forum on the 2012 elections. also, live tonight at 8 eastern, the debate between new jersey senator bob menendez and his republican challenger, state senator joe carillos. >> tonight, new jersey senator bob menendez faces his republican challenger in the first of three debates at montclair state university. we'll bring you live coverage courtesy of nj tv in englewood starting at 8:30 eastern here on c-span2. on sunday more senate debate coverage from connecticut where republican linda mcmahon and chris murphy debate to replace joe leishman. see it live -- joe lieberman. see it sunday on c-span. >> this is the first -- this is my fifth book, but the first i've written where there's an actual sustained storyline running through it. it's a true story of about, basically, ten days in london in 1854. and it's a story of an incredibly terrifying outbreak that took place during this period, an outbreak of cholera. and, in fact, the first half of the book is really quite, um, sobering and frightening in some way, um, as this
. that is a historic margin for a democrat. no, think all of us expected this to be a closer race. i think charlie the thing we should look for it now with early voting, we have metrics so one of the things that all campaigns on every side, and there are now more than two sides so every side is going to be looking. north carolina has a early voted half the voters in north carolina if not more will have voted before election day. you can track that every day. >> who they are. >> who they are in more importantly how many have voted so look, in campaigns from presidential down to city council every aspect of the campaign message turnout. i think the air wars are the ones that get all the coverage on tv but i think the ground wars will be equally important. look, i think the other thing about the electorate is at least in "the wall street journal" colin the nbc poll that the two firms collaborated on it was pre-debate. you know the president was winning independent voters by 13 points. and, in 2008 he defeated john mccain by 8% with independent smacks so with the admonition of less -- let's wait until
laugh over engine charlie wilson who is the secretary of defense under eisenhower. they always mangled the quote. they say what is good for general motors is good for america. now, he said what is good for america is good for general motors and vice versa. what he said is the fate of the company and the fate of the country were inextricably linked, when one does well, the other day as well, not smash and grab. >> another question is another thing that really annoys me is every time i buy something it says made in china. so i hate seeing that and that is why that's something that i just have a very strong feeling about making it products. this whole thing was becoming dependent upon china is really a problem. and the other problem is because of the way a lot of businesses operate come you can't compete with china and it's very expensive to produce domestic products in the united states. there's not that many companies who do that. there are small businesses. and you know, a lot of people in the news say we can just cut off -- we could say no to china whenever we want and just come back
was just overwhelming, and so finally, the moderator, charlie rose asked him, doctor watson, you have done so much work, how do you deal with aging. and so he leaned into the microphone and he said there is only one way to deal with aging. and that is to stay away from old people. [laughter] he nailed it. my wife and i were sitting behind doctor henry kissinger, who was in the audience. they handed out his little sheets where you did self scoring. self scoring on your lifestyle. how often do you eat red meat, how many bowel movements you have a weak. [laughter] general health questions. then you have points or you lost points and you added it up, and it told you how many years you had to live. now, how many people here want to know how many years you have to live? the skeptical as him as that might rightly be about the scoring sheet, it's very interesting. kissinger was filling this out with all the intensity hunched over and so elsa and i availed ourselves of the reporter's freedom of information act. [laughter] and we looked over his shoulder. we wanted to see how many years he had to li
was with charlie cook last night. he is one of the political and gnostic hitters around you, and charlie famously said something back that is present obama is related it will be to spite the economy if governor romney is elected it will be despite his campaign. and i think that is playing out right now. and i think part of it is this 50.1% attitude. i think the other thing, governor romney i think grew up in a privileged environment. just like i want to get my daughter all i can come his father wanted to do the same take. mccain was somewhat isolated with the schools and elite i think sort of thinking along the way. and i think he also, his parents instilled upon him that because of those privileges he had responsibility. and that is what you might say class had responsibility to give back and to be a leader later. so i think he wants to be president because he wants to make good decisions. he wants to, with circumstance brought before him as ambassador said, he wants to reorganize the government so it's a vision. but unlike bill clinton who could tell you 137 things he wanted to get done, i do t
with charlie. i'm sorry. with linda eads. >> we made this decision earlier. >> she works as a provost. [laughter] >> charlie is always asking me for money and i never give it to him. [laughter] >> welcome the wanted me to start first because i am going to talk about the law and i am going to bore you for five minutes. but they only gave me five minutes because of that. but there are two ideas i really want to put forward here. in some ways i think i am going to go to a point further than sandra did. i want to talk about with the constitutional issue of privacy, and then i met to talk about how the constitution results to a struggle between freedom of religion and the right of government to regulate society even when such regulations may interfere with religious doctrines because those are two points that are important here. there was a time in this country before 1965 when it was okay for a state to outlaw the use of contraceptions by married couples. several states had been for years. they were lingering on the books for years and finally the supreme court in a case called griswold v
cain, former senator tom daschle and former governor bill richardson, charlie crist and tom ridge.

[applause] >> thank very much for the fantastic introduction. it's exactly the way i wrote. [laughter] thank you very much for your partnership. one thing i want to correct is that i did not win miss universe bikinis, waxing, all of those things, i did not win that competition. no, it's miss universe. anyway i want to say i am about being in partnership with usc and from the beginning to the strong in his creativity and vision. his extraordinary vision and commitment to usc and to the shore is a maker institute is unmatched. to be honest with you it is the only one that speaks the accent. it's the big advantage we have so looking for to appearing together over and over. all over the world and leaving the audience scratching their head what the hell did i just
was with charlie cook last night. he is one of the political pronounced dictators around here and charlie famously said sometime back that as president above is reelected it will be despite the economy. if governor one you selected will be despite his campaign. and i think that is playing out right now. i think part of it is this 50.1% attitude. i think the other thing, governor romney icing grew up in a privileged environment, just like i want to give my daughter all he can come his father wanted to do the same period became somewhat isolated with the schools and with an elite sort of thinking along the way. i think also his parents instilled upon him there because of those privileges he had a responsibility and his culture might say, class, had a responsibility to give back and to be a leader. so i think he wants to be president because it wants to make good decisions. he wants with the circumstances brought before a comic he wants to we organize the government said that it is efficient. but unlike bill clinton, who could tell you 137 things you want us to get done, i don't think governor romney
i think that is telling. i was with charlie cook last night. one of the prognosticators around here. charlie famously set some time back that if president obama is reelected it will be despite the economy. if governor romney gets elected it will be despite his campaign. and i think that is playing out right now, and that the part of it is this 50 percent attitude. i think the other thing, governor romney, i think he grew up in a privileged environment. just like i want to give my daughter all that i can. his father wanted to do the same. became, you know, was somewhat isolated with the schools. i think sort of thinking along the way. and i think he also, his parents instill upon them that because of those privileges he had a responsibility. and that is, what you might say, class and the responsibility to give back and to, you know, to be a leader. and so i think he wants to be president because he wants to make good decisions. he once said, with the circumstances as the ambassador said, he wants to reorganize the government so that it's efficient. but unlike bill clinton who could t
tonight, like charlie crist. get at least a few mashed potatoes left on the plate. jon huntsman. he likes to speak manner asleep. arlen specter, lincoln chafee. but you understand the pitcher bruce ball into ears because these are courageous man of great principle and great conviction because when push came to shove, they really were conservative at all. in other words, they really were republicans, at least successful ones. so our second award for tonight is appropriately called, and this is inter-mrc brent bozell fashion, the vast right wing knuckle drivers award. now, to demonstrate his doors all things conservative, what you need to do? you need to only compare their treatment of us and then their treatment of their fellow liberals. so we are going to give you a sampling now over the years to prove the point, just so you get it. so you think dan quayle versus al gore. you think maybe bush versus obama. you think george clooney versus clint eastwood. their idea of balance. ♪ >> quayle and his supporters story protective arm around the national guard is that the institution itself und
to clarify one thing which i think speaks to what charlie was just saying. when we discussed earlier the religious freedom restoration act which was the piece of legislation that addressed the supreme court case that we discussed, the act says that if there is a compelling enough interest, then it's appropriate for the government to regulate in that way. so the question really comes to whether, frankly, the argument that i made or that ken made is a compelling enough interest. and if it is, then this is a regulation that stands. so we don't want anyone to go away thinking that the regulation is unconstitutional or is a violation of a federal statute. it's not. >> yet. [laughter] >> there are, there are some cases that have not yet been decided, but i feel that they're going to turn out in the way that i described. >> probably. >> yeah. [laughter] >> [inaudible] >> we've talked a little bit about where there is room or for compromise on some of of these issues, but what types of things do you think are negotiable? what can we reach sort of a happy medium on some of these issues? >> hm
